Hello Everyone! I hope that you haven't given up on me yet! I bet that you all can tell that school has started for me. Actually, today is our "official" day back so I will be going in shortly. This week is filled with meetings and getting our rooms ready. My students will come next Wednesday. At least our NEW and IMPROVED air conditioning system is done and seems to be working! We now have our OWN climate controlled rooms!! YEA!! Bring on the hot flashes!!
So, last night I was at Becky's for most of the afternoon and evening. We both got so much done! I needed to come up with projects for our stamp club and also get a jump start on cards for the blog. I got my club projects whipped up right away and then started on blog cards. I was so excited to have cards for this week and part of next!! So, keep coming back! You never know when I will get in the "groove"!
Today starts the official day that we all can order from the NEW Idea Book & Catalog (Fall/Winter Collection 2008). I am so excited!! We do have to wait until noon to start ordering because Stampin' Up! is getting their system ready (I hope they get it ready for system overload!). Anyway, today's card came from the new catalog. And, if you don't have a new catalog you really need to get one!! It is FANTASTIC!! Don't even ask me how BIG my first order is! At least my husband didn't faint. I was inspired by a card on page 190. This card was my least favorite of the bunch but it still is nice. Anyway, I hope that you get inspired and don't forget to get your new catalog! See you soon!
